McGregor vs Khabib II is a rematch that all eyes are on! While nothing is official right now, all the fans of the sport have a gut feeling that the two giants are going to clash once again and they hope it happens sooner rather than later. Interestingly, Khabib Nurmagomedov has now hinted that he has two other matches in mind before anything else.
Let us take a closer look at who these two names are – and what is next for Khabib as well as McGregor.
Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants to Fight Gaethje and Ferguson
Khabib, who hasn’t fought in the UFC since the aftermath of UFC 229, continues to keep a close eye at what’s happening in the company. He realizes that Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje are among two of the biggest names right now and wants to face them before a McGregor vs Khabib rematch.
He even suggested that Tony vs Gaethje should be a fight and whoever wins this match will get to face him. Khabib even suggested that UFC can make this fight a co-main event at Abu Dhabi during UFC 242 where he faces off against Dustin Poirier in the main event.
When Will We See Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov II
A rematch between McGregor vs Khabib is what we have all been waiting for. However, while McGregor seems to have “retired” until he gets a share in the UFC (which is highly unlikely), Khabib has asked him to pile up a few wins before he faces him again. A rematch between these two is unlikely to take place any time before 2020.
